Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This manual is a compilation of board-style test questions, accompanied by answers and explanations for each item.
Purpose: The book's expressed purpose is to enable the reader to successfully pass certification and recertification exams by the American Board of Family Practice. A review of the questions, as well as the accompanying answers and explanations, indicates an excellent representation of the types of questions frequently encountered on family practice boards.
Audience: Although clearly written for physicians preparing for formal board exams, the book will nonetheless benefit any learner who wishes to get an assessment of her/his understanding of the broad-based specialty of family practice. The author is an academic family physician with a good understanding of the nature of the boards.
Features: The book begins with a very useful set of guidelines and recommendations regarding the concepts of test taking and exam preparation. The bulk of the text is divided into specialty categories, the length of each approximating the emphasis the exam places on each specialty section. Test questions are developed in a board-style format, with pictorial questions (such as dermatology) playing an appropriate role. The explanation for each correct answer is well articulated and appropriately referenced.
Assessment: This 300-page paperback is a solid, cost-effective way to assess one's knowledge of family practice and to prepare for the certification exam. Although it is not a substitute for more authoritative formal texts, it nonetheless packs a great deal of useful information into its question-and-answer format, and can thus may be used as a true learning tool. For many of us, it will be a practical substitute for the lengthy (and often quite expensive) board review courses.
Y. Alan Lambert
This book provides a review for American Board of Family Practice (ABFP) examinations. Its purpose is to prepare the reader for examinations administered by the ABFP, and this worthwhile objective is met. This review is directed toward family practice residents, to help them do well on in-service examinations, as well as practicing physicians, to help them pass the ABFP certification or re-certification examinations. The author is credible in the field. This book has a very simple and short format consisting of an explanation of how to register for the various ABFP examinations; a few pages explaining test-taking tips; Part I multiple-choice questions (MCQs); and Part II clinical problem sets (CPSs). Part I consists of 561 one-best answer MCQs covering internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, surgery, and geriatrics. Almost one-half (269) of the MCQs are in the internal medicine section. Part II consists of 42 CPSs (patient management scenarios) with 519 options, each requiring a true or false choice. Of the MCQs, I judge that the mythical ""minimally competent family physician"" would find 15 percent very difficult to answer, 45 percent moderately difficult to answer, and 40 percent relatively easy to answer. Some of the references are dated. Two main strengths are evident. Most of the disciplines needed to practice good family medicine are covered adequately, and all questions and problems have very good, detailed answer and explanation sections. The main weakness is the fact that there are no multiple true-false (X-type) MCQs. This review book is well worth the price, especially since a postage-free card is provided to order a free CD-ROMsupplement from the publisher.

From The Critics
Bratton (family medicine, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida) provides this directed review of important topics which typically appear on American Board of Family Practice in-training, board certification, and recertification examinations. The text is designed not as a comprehensive review, but as a way for the examinee to identify areas of weakness requiring further review. It contains over 1,100 board-format questions, with detailed questions and answers, in all areas of family practice. The second edition includes an expanded psychiatry section, new sections on epidemiology/public health and emergency medicine, and a new pictorial atlas of clinical photographs, radiographs, lab smears, and more, to prepare examinees for questions about images.
